, right around the world that considered a resident barack obama to be a good president. considering him to be healthy for the state of the american nation. i profoundly disagree. i believe that america is an exceptional nation and deserves an exceptional president. and my greatest issue with president obama was his interview with a reporter what he was directly asked whether or not he believed in american exceptionalism. and his response was rather telling. he said yes, i believe in american exceptionalism, much like i believe in british and a greek might believe in greek exceptionalism. wellies and gentlemen that can only be one exceptional. and it would appear with that statement and with his actions and actions of the administration they have only subscribe to the doctrine of the relativism, that there is no one thing superior to any other. that we shouldn't call or consider one way better than another. not only do i think that is week, i think that is wrong and i think that is not the sign of a nation that has done so much for the world and is the model to which every nation should
